More than 1 person receiving the same "Award"

I am referring this post from these previous questions:

It would be a really great idea to be able to assign multiple people on one award. It would be such a hassle and a list that is way too long on the awards panel if we were to create the same awards and assign these to different people.

Hi Grandia,

We have been considering a pretty drastic overhaul to the awards for some time, where we may want to switch this to an achievements type system, where members can auto earn awards based on certain criteria (such as writing X posts), and also custom achievements could be added by site owners (with and without criteria requirements), and then each achievement earned would be shown on the members profile, and they can select which of the ones they earned to optionally show over their avatar on the site...

This would then make each award on the awards page show everyone who has achieved this, making all awards work how you're requesting...

We had actually planned this as part of our major revamp a month or so back, but there was some issues we needed to work out with it so it has been delayed; but this is something we're looking at enhancing on the site and making a more prominent and hopefully more fun feature =)

Cheers,

Cool. Is there a chance that you could make an option that would enable or disable to show rewards for disabled members on the award sideblock. Would still like to see those awards for ex-members in the main award page.

hmm, i'm not sure on this one; we aim to hide deleted/inactive members as much as possible; adding toggles for this throughout the site would make this a little confusing...

This sounds pretty good :D I'd be pretty happy if this would be put in to the website. This would cover up my worries about more than 1 person receiving the same "Award" at the moment. :)

excellent =) this will still be a little ways off tho, as we have a few planned updates to push live over the next few weeks still, but we are leaning towards that being our plan for awards, and will likely try and resolve any issues with it and prepare it for an update once we finish these next additions.

Cheers,

I have another idea! Would it be possible for the same person to receive multiple awards? I hope that you don't think that I am asking for the same idea xD Its completely different. This time, it would be great if the member of the guild would be able to have 2 different awards at a time without having to remove their previous award...

Hi Grandia,

This would be possible with the new system we are considering; where it would show all your awards and you can select from those which to display =)

3 years later, I'd really be interested in this or at least some badges to give to my members like a "Leader" "Officer" "Moderator" badges etc. :)
